Lulav Shortage

Even New York Magazine is covering the Lulav shortage. Funny quote:
“I have a big lulav shortage, and I’m having conniptions here,” says Levi Zagelbaum, president of lulav importer Esrog Headquarters in Midwood.
Another good quote:
Queens congressman Gary Ackerman says the crisis stems from a recent decision by Egypt—the Saudi Arabia of lulavs—to export only 100,000 branches, instead of the usual million. “Unless [President] Mubarak wants to be known as the Grinch who stole Sukkoth, he’s going to have to do a heck of a lot better than that,” says Ackerman, who’s been lobbying Egypt for more...“Let my palm fronds go!” says Ackerman.

I just wanted to inform everyone of a new service, a Worldwide Sukkah Directory. The idea of this service is to enable working people to find a sukkah close to their place of work, and thereby enable them to eat their lunch in a sukkah. The service is located at www.mitzvosonthego.org. Registrations are currently being accepted and can be sent to webmaster@mitzvosonthego.org.

It's already been resolved. The requisite number of lulavim were procured, although hopefully this was a wakeup call for us for the future.
